BZ-176 — a fuzzy premium tank with new rocket booster mechanics in World of Tanks

The BZ-176 (China, TT-8, premium, mechanics: rocket boosters) came out for the first time last night on General Test 1.18.1.
The tank has new rocket booster mechanics, which are triggered and have action time. Gas pedals have limited charges (4 per battle).

The mechanics are quite interesting: when activated you can not maneuver, so you need to think when it is best to use the gas pedal. As one of the best options is a ram. You can also occupy key points first relative to other heavy equipment. We think we will see more than once interesting moments of the game with these gas pedals.

Characteristics and appearance as always in front of you. For what and how – think for yourself.

** In the 1960s, under conditions of tense relations with the Soviet Union, the PRC came up with the concept of creating a “frontier cover force”. The main firepower of this formation was to be units with “border cover tanks” in service. In order to reduce the overall height of the vehicle, a raised roof over the gun was used. In addition, the tank was planned to be equipped with twin tracks and rocket boosters. Theoretically, due to their high power-to-weight ratio, these would have given good mobility and cross-country capability. The project was closed in 1978, prototypes were not made.
